Yes, you'd like something like that. The idea is to use an event to sample
and the others to compute event deltas. For instance, how many loads/stores
instructions retired for every 100k instructions retired. For that you need
grouping. The kernel supports this already, the perf tool does not.

I don't think you need to change the file format. Everything is there
already in the headers. OF course, you perf report needs to detect
this mode and adjust the output. IF not, then it should only display
samples coming from the first event. Not clear how you'd display
the information in perf report or perf annotate at this point yet.
